38:1  Sad. By the Quran full of the remembrance.
38:2  Nay those who disbelieve are in vain glory and dissension.
38:3  How many of a generation before them have We destroyed and they called out [for salvation] when the time of escape had long gone by.
38:4  And they wonder that a warner has come to them from among themselves and the disbelievers say, “This is a magician full of lies.”
38:5  Has he made the deities into one deity? Truly this surely is a thing astonishing.
38:6  And the chiefs among them go about [saying] that, “Walk [on your way] and hold steadfastly onto your deities. Truly this surely is a thing most desired.
38:7  We have never heard of this in the later religion. This is but a fabrication.
38:8  Is the remembrance sent down on him from among us?” Nay they are in incredulity about My remembrance. Nay! They have not yet tasted My punishment.
38:9  Or is it that with them are the treasures of mercy of your Lord, The All-mighty, The All-endowing?
38:10  Or is it that theirs is the dominion of the heavens and of the earth and what is between them? Then let them ascend into the doors [of the heavens and the earth].
38:11  Whatever hosts of the confederates there may be, they are bound to be defeated.
38:12  Before them belied the people of Noah and ‘Ad and Pharaoh, the owners of the pegs [The pyramids]
38:13  and Thamud and people of Lot and the inhabitants of the wooded vales. Those are the confederates.
38:14  There is no one [of them] except that they belied the messengers so My chastisement was rightly passed [against them].
38:15  And these are waiting for nothing except for one deafening blast from which there will be no recovering for them.
38:16  And they say, “O our Lord! Bring to us in haste our share [of punishment] before the day of reckoning.”
38:17  Bear with patience all that they say and remember Our servant David, the master of power. Truly he was one who was crier to Allah.
38:18  We indeed caused the mountains to be subjects [to him] they glorify with him [Our praises] in the evening and at sunrise,
38:19  and the birds all assembled, all crier unto Him [after his manner].
38:20  And We strengthened his kingdom and We gave him the wisdom and distinctiveness in speech.
38:21  And has the news of the contendents come to you when they scaled the wall of the innermost chamber?
38:22  When they suddenly came in upon David so he was attained by fear from them. They said, “Do not fear. We are two contendents. One of us has trespassed against the other therefore judge between us by the truth and do not transgress and guide us to the path most even.
38:23  This indeed is my brother. He has ninety nine ewes and I only have one ewe but he said, ’Put her in my charge’ and he has overwhelmed me in speech.”
38:24  He said, “He has indeed wronged you by asking to add your ewe to his ewes and truly many of the associates do trespass against one another except those who have full belief and work righteousness and few are they.” Thereupon David thought that We had just tried him so he sought forgiveness from his Lord and fell bowing down and returned [to his Lord].
38:25  So We granted forgiveness to him about that and truly for him with Us is truly a place of proximity and an excellent place of return.
38:26  O David! We have indeed appointed you as a vicegerent on earth therefore judge between people by the truth and do not follow the false desire lest it leads you astray from the way of Allah. Truly those who go astray from the way of Allah, for them there will be a formidable punishment because they forgot the day of reckoning.
38:27  And We have not created the heaven and the earth and all that is in between them in vain. That is the thought of those who disbelieve. But woe from the fire unto all those who disbelieve.
38:28  Shall We make those who believe and do righteous deeds like those who spread corruption in the earth? or shall We make those who revere Allah like those who transgress [against their Lord]?
38:29  It is a book which We have sent down unto you full of blessings so that they may acknowledge in truth its signs and so that the people of heart take [it] for remembrance.
38:30  And unto David We gave Solomon, - Best of the slaves. Truly he was a crier [unto Allah].
38:31  When at eventide was brought before him the steeds of thorough breed.
38:32  And he said, “I indeed have taken the love of the good [horses] above the remembrance of my Lord until it [the sun] disappeared behind the veil [of darkness of the night]
38:33  Bring them back to me” and he fell to passing his hands over [their] legs and necks.
38:34  And We had indeed tried Solomon and had thrown upon his chair a lifeless body then he returned to Us in repentance.
38:35  He said, “O my Lord! Forgive me and bestow upon me a dominion which shall not be fitting for anyone [to have] after me. Truly you are The All-endowing.”
38:36  Then We made the wind subservient to him. It moved gently by his command wherever he aims.
38:37  And the devils [Jinns] of every builder and [every] diver [were made subservient to him].
38:38  And others bound together in the fetters.
38:39  This is Our gift so give or hold back without reckoning.
38:40  And truly for him in Our presence surely is a station of proximity and an excellent place of return.
38:41  And remember Our slave Job when He cried out unto his Lord that, “Satan has indeed touched me with fatigue and suffering.”
38:42  Strike with your foot [the ground]. This is a cool bath and a drink.
38:43  And We bestowed upon him, his family and a like number of them with them as a mercy from Us and as a remembrance for the people of heart.
38:44  And hold with your hand a bundle of branches and with it hit and do not break your oath. Truly We found him one who was patient. How best of the slaves. Truly he was a crier [unto his Lord].
38:45  And remember Our servants Abraham and Isaac and Jacob; masters of the power and of the sight.
38:46  We indeed have selected them purely for the remembrance of the home.
38:47  And they indeed in Our sight are truly of those who were the chosen, the select.
38:48  And remember Ishmael, and Elisha and Zul-kifl. All of them from the select.
38:49  This is a remembrance. And as for those who revere Allah, is truly an excellent place of return;
38:50  gardens of everlastingness, the doors will be open for them.
38:51  Therein they will be reclining and therein they will be calling for lots of fruits and for drinks.
38:52  And with them will be women with lowered gaze well matched.
38:53  This is what you are promised for the day of reckoning.
38:54  This indeed truly is Our provision [for you] which will never finish.
38:55  This [is a glad tiding]. But indeed for the transgressors truly there is a place of return most evil;
38:56  Hell - they will burn therein how woeful is the resting place.
38:57  This is a boiling water and a freezing drink, let them taste it then,
38:58  and another from a similar form all paired.
38:59  This is a crowd erupting with you, no welcome for them. They indeed are going to be the ones burning in the fire.
38:60  They say, “Nay! No welcome for you. It is you who have prepared this for us”. And how woeful is the place of dwelling.
38:61  They say, “O our Lord! Whosoever has sent this forth for us, double then his punishment in the fire.”
38:62  And they say, “What is the matter with us that we do not see some men that we used to count as from the evil ones?
38:63  Is it that we took them for a jest or is it that the sights have wandered from them?”
38:64  Truly that is surely the mutual recrimination of the people of the fire.
38:65  Say, “I am but a warner and there is no deity except Allah, The One, The All Over-powering,
38:66  Lord of the heavens and of the earth and of whatever is in between them, The All-mighty, The Oft-Forgiving.
38:67  Say, “That is a magnificent news.”
38:68  But you have turned away from it.
38:69  I had no knowledge regarding the chieftains of the on-high as they disputed.
38:70  It is only revealed to me that I am but an evident warner.
38:71  When your Lord said to the angels, “I am going to create a human out of clay.
38:72  And once I have created him even [between water and dust] and I have blown in him from My spirit, then fall down prostrate for him.”
38:73  So the angels fell prostrate all of them altogether;
38:74  except Iblis, he grew arrogant and was one of the disbelievers.
38:75  He said, “O Iblis! What has prevented you from prostrating for that which I have created with My both hands? Have you become one of the great ones or are you one of those of high?”
38:76  He Said, “I am better than him. You created me from fire and You created him from clay.”
38:77  He said, “Go out of it, for truly you are a pelted one.
38:78  And truly My curse is on you until the day of the recompense.”
38:79  He said, “O my Lord! Then give me respite until the day they shall be raised.”
38:80  He said, “So you indeed are among those who are given the respite
38:81  till the day of the appointed time”.
38:82  He [Iblis] said, “And by Your might, I will surely cause them to go astray from the right path all of them”
38:83  except Your servants among them who are the selected ones.
38:84  He [Allah] said, “So it is the truth and the truth is what I say.
38:85  Surely I will fill hellfire with you and with those who follow you among them altogether.”
38:86  Say [O Muhammad], “I do not ask you for any reward for it nor am I of those who take it upon themselves.”
38:87  It is but a remembrance for the worlds.
38:88  And you will surely come to know its ascertained news after a little while.
